Via Jihadwatch, more evidence of the sharia-fication of England:
Muslim council chiefs ban ALL members from 'tea and sandwiches' in meetings during Ramadan
So reads the headline in the Evening Standard. I don't think the tea and sandwich ban will actually stand, but look at what passes for language of defiiance from Liberal Democrat leader Stephanie Eaton in the East London Advertiser:
“This sends out the wrong message to our community. Our community consists of a huge number of different religions, all of which should be valued, and no one religion should be accorded more status or influence than others.
Of course, she's wrong. If ALL members fast for Ramadan, the community would achieve perfect cohesion.
“Freedom of belief is an important human right, and we Liberal Democrat councillors, Muslim and non-Muslim, agree that this request is inappropriate.”
She has also written to Town Hall bosses about her concerns that their move “will not enhance community cohesion and asking for their reassurance that no faith is given any particular status or priority in the operation or decisions of the council."
